Oh, how I love thee.

Yes, I realize that everyone and their mother in the fashion blogging world has these, but note: I am not everyone and their mother. Therefore, these are still exciting as hell to me!!!



I won't go into the hell it took for these babies to finally get to me, but let's just say that I won't ever be placing a special order from Aldo Shoes ever again. :(

These are shockingly comfortable, despite the high heel. I think that the height of the platform sort of cancels out the heel. They don't even feel terribly high, actually!

Now I just can't wait to wear them! I'm already imagining outfits in my head and trying to get a feel for all of the different styles I could wear them with!



I couldn't find the shoes in black when I was messing around with Polyvore here. I know I'd love to pair these shoes with skinny jeans, short skirts, and some quintessential rock n' roll accessories. I should probably wear a simple outfit so that all of the focus is on the shoes, but I feel like these would just up the rockin' quotient of any outfit and turn the fashion amp up to 11. (Kudos to you if you catch the reference.). ;)

How would you wear these shoes? Would you keep the rest of your outfit conservative, or go all-out-wild?

Oh, lawd. Those are gorgeous. I love the big chunky platform.

Oh, I'm officially in love with these! The inside of the shoe is padded just right so that they're a LOT more comfortable than I was expecting, too! :)

They're really fabulous. I've been really into the idea of juxtaposing sort of tough, edgy-looking stuff with soft, feminine pieces. I think those shoes would be killer with a sweet floral dress or maybe a pencil skirt and tie-necked blouse. They'll also look great with opaque tights when the weather gets cooler...

Those are freaking HOT.

Sara: I really never thought of pairing it with something sweet like that! I think that'd actually be adorable. Maybe I'll scout out Goodwill today and see what I come up with. ;) Now, if I can only find that studded wrapped belt. haha

Gabby: Thank you!!! :D

Linda! I've found your blog :D It's rachel/ne0ndice from LJ.

I'd personally pair those shoes with some light and airy skirts or dresses for contrast. I can see myself wearing a light pink dress with those babies (I wish I owned something similar!).
